      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

State Fair Muskies

Recommended Posts

Anyone know of any fishing/muskie booths at the fair. I know the DNR has their pond and building but didn't know if Reeds or Muskies Inc or anyone like that had areas. Headed there on Wednesday and was curious.

sorta shocking based on fishing and MN going hand in hand...

I did notice there was a small selection of fishing gear at one of the boat displays. I'm not sure what type of gear they had, I didn't go look, but I do know there were some rods at a minimum.

Chapter 54 was there all day yesterday with a few Mounts and sore throats when we left, it was a good day, unfortunately the P.A. system was not available at the pond so we did everything from the stage, which sucks....

We talked about the resource, Muskies Inc, safety, getting kids involved and DCMusky spent some time on baits and techniques, I'm not sure if he explained the how to catch 50# Muskie tactics..LOL he looked at me kinda funny when I told a guy about it eek

I'll see about getting a chapter there with a table and info every day or every other day next year..

Have some fun with it.....

Raise some money...get a DUNK tank..put some of the overbearing knowitalls of the muskie world in it...some good guys / gals also...$5 a ball...regular fishers an people with big smiles can fire round after round and drop them into the slop donated from a street sweeper or some cold used grease from the cheese curd booth.

smile

The addition of the big school of Crappies & sunnies has been fun to watch.

Lil tiny muskie fish also fun to watch...kids as well adults enjoy it all.

smile
